What You Should Know About Your Infestation
Subterranean termites will jump headlong into sound wood and building supplies in order to find a viable food source. Termites thrive on cellulose-based materials. This means chewing the majority of plant-based materials and products. Wood, organic debris, cotton and natural linens, cardboard and paper are all food sources.
No termite infestation can be fully removed without a thorough look over of your property. Determining where these critters found their way in is vital to keeping them out. In the case of subterranean termites, moisture is a necessity. These insects will even tunnel downward into the soil in order to find it. Conversely, if these termites have already made it inside, they are already working against the integrity of your home.
Penticton Termite Extermination: Signs of Infestation
Visible signs of subterranean termites in your home include sawdust, discarded wings and mud-packed holes running through wood. These termites pack their trails with mud in order to maintain the moisture in the wood as they begin to travel through the structure of your home. The more dangerous habit of the termite is that they cover their tracks, eating wood from the inside out and leaving it hollow. Looking in from the outside, the wood appears in fine order but it is unsound, able to fail at any time.
These pests are beneficial out in the rural/natural world, creating compost and breaking down rotten or dead wood, but these qualities are not welcome inside. If it is time to kick these tiny intruders out the door, call Toodaloo pest and wildlife services, 1-844-TOODALOO (866-3250).
